    Illegal dog breeding and animal abuse cases in Lithuania

    Question for written answer E-004910/2020
    to the Commission
    Rule 138
    Petras Auštrevičius (Renew)

    Last week, Lithuanian society was deeply shocked by the scope of and conditions involved in illegal dog breeding and animal abuse cases uncovered and publicly reported on in Lithuania: a number of illegal puppy mills were found by volunteers and civil society organisations in three Lithuanian counties in the space of a few days. In spite of the fact that international and Lithuanian NGOs have been raising the issue of large-scale illegal animal breeding in Lithuania for a number of years, government and official institutions have not taken any action to improve the situation, causing the further spread of uncontrolled illegal breeding activities all over the country.
